  • Because they are easily accessible at home when it is convenient And Information is consolidated into one site
  • Because today’s educational system is different from when parents were in school and parents are unfamiliar with the curriculum Websites are valuable because they can act like a window into the classroom.
  • Empower parents to help their children
  • For example lost or damaged notes/papers in the bottom of backpacks Provides an alternative to face to face conversations
  • The main problem that I am addressing in this project are the differing levels of parent participation and academic expectations parents have for their child
  • Another component of the problem is parent/teacher miscommunication The teacher may view this inaction by the parents as indifference, and may provide less communication/home support Student pays the price
  • Essentially, even though a student is willing and able, without someone at home to check in and work with them, student academic progress will be negatively affected
  • One crucial element of the background and need, is that it seems every time you blink, there is a new standard you have to teach. Its impossible to keep up with the mounting academic expectations.
  • Class time is used for introduction of new concepts, which leaves very little time for practice and mastery
  • One way of addressing these difficulties is increasing parent involovement. Numerous studies show that students whose parents are more involved in their education, perform better than those whose aren’t. Most crucial indicator of a students academic performance is parents who have high academic expectations for their child.
  • There is very little research about the efficacy of class websites.
  • First, I will create a dynamic interactive class website for my students and parents
  • I looked at all the research and information to pick the key elements I wanted to include
  • Teacher Section will contain a little autobiography/resume of background, credentials and interests;contact information and a picture. Parent Section will contain a parent blog, surveys, contact info, tutorials and suggestions for home. Student Section will contain challenges, activities and links to other sites Class Information Section will include, class calendar, news, supply lists, schedules and a class pictures sit Homework Section will have an overview of expectations and tutorials and tips for success
  • First objective is that parents will actually use the website to access class information tips for helping their child at home
  • The second objective is that parents will use the website to access resources to help their child at home. Such as links to educational sites and tutorials.
  • Lastly, I will use surveys and interviews before, during and after the implementation of the website to monitor parent use and perceptions of the website
  • Teachers need to do everything they can to get parents on board because the stakes are so high
  • Parents need to to do their part at home and actually use the website
  • This project will provide the interactive venue necessary for this partnership to be successful
  • All changes in parent use and perceptions will be measured. I will be using surveys and interviews to gather information.
